12 Journalists Receive RTDNF German Fellowship

The Radio Television Digital News Foundation has selected 12 producers, reporters and online editors from across the country to become fellows in Europe this June as part of RTDNF’s ongoing partnership with the RIAS Berlin Kommission. 2016 represents the 23rd year in the partnership between the RTDNF and RIAS, which has brought more than 635 electronic journalists to Germany.
The summer 2016 German/American Journalist Exchange Program will run from June 12 to 25. Sponsored by the RIAS Berlin Kommission, it will feature briefings with top-level German political, business and media figures in Berlin, discussions with officials in the former East German city of Erfurt, and meetings with international journalists in Cologne. The program will conclude with meetings in Brussels, Belgium at the EU and NATO. The electronic journalists selected for this program are:

  • Olivia Allen-Price, interactive and engagement producer — KQED Public Radio, San Francisco
  • Ryan Bergeron, special projects producer — CNN, Atlanta
  • Kathy Bradshaw, journalism professor — BGSU, Bowling Green, Ohio
  • Burl Britt III, content producer — WNBC-TV, New York
  • Angela Chen, Reporter — KRIV-TV, Houston, TX
  • Melissa Colorado, multimedia reporter — KARE-TV, Minneapolis
  • Wilma Consul, producer — NPR, Washington
  • Anthony Moreno, news director — KRWG-TV-FM, Tucson, Ariz.
  • Amanda Scott, MMJ — Voice of America, Washington
  • Dustin Stephens, producer — CBS News, New York
  • Paige Sutherland, reporter — New Hampshire Public Radio, Concord, N.H.
  • Alima Williams, writer/producer — CNN, Atlanta

“It will be an exciting time to be in Europe this June, as the United Kingdom votes on whether to remain part of the European Union,” said Mike Cavender, RTDNF executive director. “It presents a perfectly-timed opportunity for our fellows to report from Europe on a major story that could have real impact here at home.”
Since 1994, RTDNF has administered this media fellowship as part of its German/American Journalist Exchange Program with the RIAS Berlin Kommission. The application deadline for the fall program in Europe is May 1.
